With 2 weeks to go until The Sable Quean hits bookshelves across the US, it's a bit unusual that we haven't seen anything related to the audio book that is usually released alongside the novel.
A few months ago, artist Sean Rubin confirmed to me that he was "definitely" the artist for the audio book, but was unaware of a scheduled release date.
In the past, we saw the Doomwyte audio book appear on Amazon 3 months prior to release, and the artwork 1 month away from the big day.
For The Sable Quean though, there's been nothing, with the exception of a listing in Redwall.org's shop. However I can only take that with a grain of salt considering the book has not popped up online in any of the normal places.
Let's hope we find out some news soon, as I know many fans truly enjoy the stories in this format.
Reader Benjamin has pointed out that the Recorded Books catalog is now listing the audio book for release on April 9, 2010 in cassette format ($56.75) and April 16, 2010 for CD ($44.95). Thanks Benjamin!
